I'll admit mines not that original, but still better than these people. I just wonder if some of these are even names that are allowed.
 
 
 
 
*sorry if I put this in the wrong spot too.
 
*also if it matters these people are on Oasis server.

No offense, but Axemaker is more fitting of a name than soloforce. The others are horrible though.

soloforce is a dumb name. this account was made when I played SWG. That's not my player name. I guess you didn't notice it in the corner of the screenshot.
 
trust me if I could change soloforce I would.

same here. I hear that the wait is like 3hrs to get a responce so.... I figured this was a better way to get attention to the subject. Here's another person..
 
Anyone who watches Stargate SG-1 will know this one: http://eq2players.station.sony.com/en/image_view.vm?imageId=21539
 
This one is more original, but still.

On Nektulos, I've seen people named "Leggolas", "Kelfka", and "Sqquall", just to name those I can remember.

This is a fantasy game after all, people should put a little more thought into the names they choose.  Some are just stupid, and others are painfully obvious.  I saw like 3 seperate people with a variation on Gandalf's name last night.  If you're going to use a tolkien name(or a Norse name if you're going to be technical), at least dig a little for a more obscure one.  My dwarf's name i got from the Silmerilion.

On my EQ1 server (Bristlebane) I saw the following:
 
Avril Lavigne
Britney Spears
Okisthisnamegood Caniplaynow
Imgonna Rezyourazz
 
etc.
 
I hope that the mods don't allow this kind of trash in EQ2.

I agree with the number of lame names. Although I don't prefer the random name generator, I do think a good name, and not one stolen with the letters manipulated is very creative. I do however have my own little way of naming some of my characters that borders on the unoriginal, I use font names. Nice sounding ones, not like "Comic Sans" or anything! Having dabbed a bit in the typographical arts, I find this to be suiting for my characters.

If we're talking just flat out BAD names, I think "Deadrabbitz" on Nektulos is the worst I've seen.

actually i think names like gandolph, legolas, megaman, therock, and crap like that is all perfectly fine... i say that because SOMEONE has to take those names and the ones that do are usually the ones who log on first. its a good description of the "veterans" in most cases and will let you know if your playing with someone who is really obsessed with something or a complete newb (ex: ganndolphh because every variation was already taken).I personally like Magnuss and Bailler, cause they are mine. one is my name, the other is what i thought of when my name was taken and since Magnuss has been taken i have seen Magnus, Magnusss, Magniss, Magnuz, etc. magus is from a videogame so i understand that one but simply cause my name is unorigonal i dont think it means that i didnt put thought into it i was simply logged on first

Here's my vote for the worst name I've ever seen. Brought to you by the Permafrost server:
 
Ummmmm
 
 
Yes, that was his name: Ummmm.
 
Brilliant. Just brilliant.

Does it really matter? I mean, people pay 15 bucks to play this game per month. Shouldnt they be able to name their characters whatever they want?

Testicle? Yeah right man, that will last maybe one or two more days. Sure they pay 15 dollars a month, but they also agree to ToS every single time they log in, and one of those rules is an appropiate name...
 
Sorry man, as funny as testicle might be, ain't happening.

Please /petition these names.  Yes, we all pay $15.00 dollars--we do however agree to the terms of service, and the rules for appropriate names.

"Appropriate" meaning names that are not perverted or contain sexual content.  Even though Gandallphhh (or whatever)...is unoriginal... its still appropriate.   I agree with the message above that you should be aloud to name your character these unoriginal names BECAUSE you are paying $15/month.  It's not offending anyone so who cares.

Yeah but how can I be expected to get into a fantasy game when there is someone named Human, and Axemaker running around? They should at least be names and not a series of words strung together.

Just what do you have against 'Axemaker' as a name?
 
Where do you think 'Smith' came from ?
.....Carpenter....
.....Tanner....
....Hunter....
....Cooper...
 
 
And many more [ a good half of old european surnames are just old job descriptions ]
 
Axemaker is an utterly legit charecter name, for a losely mediaval based fantasy game such as EQ2.

I dont mind the Legolas or Gandolph names really, to each their own.  Unoriginal but if thats what makes them happy who cares.  Other names that are outside of the initial agreement that we have to click "I Agree" on every day are another story.  Penishead should be removed.  Not because I've never heard the word **bleep** before, but I'd rather not see a guy with that name.  I'm not going to petition that though, if it gets caught fine, but its not worth the effort really.  Saw Blowjobqueen in EQL the other day.

I hate the names that you have to look up everytime you want to talk to them and figure out the spelling.

One of the benefits to being on the Antonia Bayle server, which is roleplay preferred, is that there arn't too many inappropriate, plagarized, or just plain stupid names...most of the people who RP tend to be too mature for that.  How could you roleplay a character named Healunow Rezulater or something of that nature anyways?  The only "bad" name I've seen on AB is Aragon and yes it was a ranger, well a Qeynos predator to be exact, but it was a Wood Elf not a Human...still it's blatantly ripped-off from LOTR and annoys me.

The best of the worst in bad names list begins.
Splinter and 10 different varrations of that name all Ratonga
Legolas 7 different spellings
Gandalf 3 different spellings
Drazzbiter he got /petitioned as soon as I saw the name. I have seen to many names with the azz in them of misspellings of other swearwords.( Will not post them here but most were for the F word (Rhyms with duck)or the B word (Rhyms with Pitch)
Pikachu only one of these so far
many Pokemon names and misspellings
Quite a few phrases like Ihealforu, Mebash, Ionwzjoo, lots of leet speek.
Oh and the most favorite of them all Eqtworox (almost felt bad reporting this one......ALMOST)
 
The only thing that I am glad for is that most if not 99.9% of these people will not renew EQ2 and we wont be seing some of these names as often.
I sure hope that the naming filter gets a lot tougher these names are for the most part totaly inaproperate(sp) or just plain filthy.
Yes they all are going to be paying 15 dollars US but please put some consideration into your name.
 
As a side note I keep a list of the names that I report. So far the list contains 60 names and growing every day.
I try and squish the bad names on the Isle but since I was late getting into the game some have made it into the rest of the world.

so if I do the /petition what exactly do I type in?
 
/petition offending_name? or just /petition and wait for a responce?
 
sorry for the dumb question, but yeah I guess just putting it here won't change much.
